Just want to share

    Today in clinical py pt has a foley that has been irrigated (perhaps it will need to be irrigated again), a PEG that needs residual check Q4H (never done this before) and has been having 300cc's of residual, a PICC line, pressure ulcers, and yesterday his K dropped wayyy low.

    My other patient has 17 9:00am meds, all various routes of administration.

    BRING. IT. ON.

    And a shout out to all the instructors who are awesome enough to not terrify us students, will be present during everything new I do, and make it exciting to learn! Goodness knows they're rare.

    Glad you're getting good experiences but just a heads up, at my school this would be considered a violation of HIPPA and could bring serious consequences so be careful

    No.
    It's a violation of everyone's sanity on this board when folks post about "HIPPA".
    It's not "HIPPA".
    Before you jump on someone about violating it, learn how to spell it... and it's helpful to know what it stands for so that you can spell it.

    The original post does not violate HIPAA.
    Nowhere is the pt identified.

    You know what, I originally used information that was not totally true-- you know, similar in the level of care it would require but the real story "story." I was definitely thinking about HIPAA. However, this scared the crap out of me and I edited it. Just in case.

    Sounds like you got a really good pt.
    Nice!

    Thanks, I still changed it. I'd rather not share at all than share too much. :-/

    I got 10cc's of residual the first time, gave 600 cc of free water because when I got there his Na+ went way up (600 to replace insensible water loss, I learned!), titrated up his feedings, then got 350cc residual. It was very cool!! Also got to suction and use a condom cath (his came off), which I've never done!

    And he was a total sweetie. Broke. My. Heart.

    Most folks on here do tweak their stories "just in case".
    Technically, we're all a bunch of liars on AN .
